So what exactly is this Health Pass? According to information available from the French government a Health Pass must be presented in digital or paper form, to verify one of three things:
That a guest is fully vaccinated (with an EMA-approved vaccine):
– Two weeks after the second shot for two-shot vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca);
– Four weeks after the shot for one-shot vaccines (Johnson & Johnson);
– Two weeks after the shot for vaccines administered to people who have already had COVID-19 (only one dose is necessary).
OR that a guest has been tested (PCR or Antigen) and has a negative result within the last 48 hours;
OR for persons who have had COVID-19: the result of a positive RT-PCR or Antigen test, attesting that the individual has been infected, and that a period of time of at least 11 days and less than 6 months has passed since the test result was obtained (considered as a recovery certificate).
Guests can present any form of Health Pass, including the EU digital COVID-19 certificate, or equivalent for non-European Union countries, which fulfills the criteria outlined above.
You will need to present a valid ID with your Health Pass.
If you are planning on traveling to France soon, there are guidelines you will want to review before arriving. Guests can either provide a negative Covid test 72 hours prior to departure or a digital vaccination card proving they are fully vaccinated.
Disneyland Paris was one of the last Disney Parks to reopen and they still maintain pretty strict guidelines. Face masks are still required both indoors and outdoors at all times, unless you are actively eating or drinking.
